Our first steps faltering, our next taken with mounting assurance, we, the 
class of 1956, have gradually climbed to the first exalted place on the ladder 
of learning. With perseverance and determination, we have climbed steadily, 
round by round, keeping as our goal the attainment of wisdom, knowledge 
and a philosophy of life. With the realization that our success has been de- 
pendent upon establishing a firm foothold, we have ascended carefully, not 
into empty space, but upon the security of each step. The rungs on this lad- 
der of learning have been each book which has yielded to us the richness of 
its store. 

Although the art of reading is apparently becoming almost lost in the rush 
and bustle of this electronic age which has brought with it the new media 
of radio, television, and motion pictures, the magic of the printed word has 
lost none of its power. With the hope that through a revival of this art, we may 
utilize each rung on the ladder of learning to its fullest advantage, we have 
chosen "BOOKS" as the theme of our 1956 TIOT. We earnestly hope that 
you will forever cherish this product of our labors, and that it will always 
bring fondest memories of the genuine happiness enjoyed in your three years 
"on the hill!" We, the editors, present to you the last book of your carefree 
youth and the first book of your maturity. 

"For books are more than books; they are the life, 

The very heart and core of ages past, 
The reason why men lived and worked and died, 
The essence and quintessence of their lives."

Since our theme this year is BOOKS, it seems eminently fitting that the 
1956 yearbook be dedicated to one who has done so much in encouraging 
youth to cultivate an appreciation of literature. His untiring efforts to make 
the Norwood School System one of the finest in the state, and his sincere 
interest in bettering education have made him an outstanding figure in our 
community. As with all dedicated individuals, only time can measure the 
value of his contributions, but we propose to do our small part in honoring 
him by dedicating the 1956 Yearbook to our Superintendent of Schools, Mr. 
Lincoln D. Lynch. J. J. D. 




SUPERINTENDENT LINCOLN D. LYNCH 

"In the best books, great men talk to us, give us their most precious 
thoughts and pour their souls into ours."

"Here's an adventure! What awaits 
Beyond these closed, mysterious gates? 
Whom shall I meet, where shall I go? 
Beyond the lovely land I know? 
Above the sky, across the sea? 
What shall I learn and feel and be? 
Open, strange doors, to good or ill! 
I hold my breath a moment still 
Before the magic of your look. 
What will you do to me, book?"

"Books! Books! Books! 

And we thank Thee, God 

For the gift of them, 

For the glorious reach 

And the lift of them, 

For the gleam in them 

And the dream in them, 

For the things they teach 

And the souls they reach, 

For the maze in them 

And the blaze in them, 

For the ways they open to us 

And the rays they shoot through us."

Our Sophomore Year ... We Open the Book of Our Memories. 
Ever so long ago, when we were very young, we looked up to the Senior High School 
students with awe and admiration, wondering if the day would ever come when we 
would be full-fledged members of the "school on the hill." 

When in September of '53, that long awaited day arrived, we could hardly believe 
it. But here we were at Norwood High, officially known as Sophomores, anticipating 
three long years of fun, hard work, and memorable experiences. 

After our class officers were elected in October, we were very proud that we had 
chosen John Anderson as our President; Kathleen McGuff, Vice President; Jean 
Schaier, Secretary; Diana Laakso, Girls' Treasurer; Paul Butters, Boys' Treasurer; 
Marilyn Hutchings, Girls' A.A. Representative; and Gerald Armstrong, Boys' A.A. 
Representative. 

Later in the month, we held our first social gathering of the year, our Sophomore 
Party. The gymnasium was gaily decorated in the traditional fall colors. We had a 
variety of entertainers: Jean Schaier and Ann Mercier played selections on the piano; 
Judith Howard and Janice Johnson tap-danced; a very amusing pantomime skit was 
given with Joan Thompson, Elaine Johnson and Edward Maher taking the main parts; 
Bobby Schuller and his orchestra provided music for dancing, and everyone sang, 
danced, and made merry. The refreshments were delightful and a wonderful time was 
had by all. 

In December, we presented a Christmas assembly for the upper class members and 
the faculty. Our program consisted of Christmas songs, Bible readings, Yuletide poems 
and selections by our Sophomore Glee Club. We will never forget the beautiful ren- 
dition of "Silent Night" by Nancy Kilcup and Diane Strout. 

During the rest of the year, we remained very active in school activities and we 

had a hand in many of the important events 
that took place. In May, we elected Emilie 
Sullivan to represent us on the cheering squad 
during our Junior year 

Before we knew it, our Sophomore year had 
drawn to a close, and we found ourselves look- 
ing ahead with satisfaction to the fall of '54 
and the next chapter in our lives at Norwood 
High. 

N. S. '56 

"Books are windows through which we may 
see the panorama of events, past, present, and 
future."

OUR CLASS OFFICERS AS JUNIORS 

Conley, Sastavickas, Foley, Hutchings, Laakso, Schaier, Butters 

OUR JUNIOR YEAR— Chapter Two of our Reminiscences. 

September 1954 crept in swiftly behind the fading skirts of August and it was time 
again to resume our High School days. 

To pilot us through our second important year on the "Hill," we chose Coleman 
Foley our President; Marjorie Sastavickas, Vice-President; Jean Schaier, Secretary; 
Diana Laakso, Girls' Treasurer; Paul Butters, Boys' Treasurer; Marilyn Hutchings 
and Paul Conley, A.A. Representatives. 

In December, we received the Christmas gift of being the first class to wear the 
new, permanent class ring of Norwood High. 

We held our Junior Prom on the very rainy night of February 11th. In accordance 
with our theme song, "Moonlight Serenade," the gym was transformed into a lovely 
ballroom, gaily decorated with streamers and silhouettes. The dance music, the filmy 
dresses, the lovely corsages, and romantic atmosphere of our Promenade made it an 
occasion to be long remembered and cherished by us all. 

Early in June, the Harvard Book was awarded to Timothy Lynch as the most out- 
standing boy in our class. Eleanor Stitt won the medal for excellence in History which 
is awarded annually to the Senior or Junior who excels in that subject. James Drurft- 
mey, John O'Connor, and Richard Ellis were our capable representatives to Boys' 
State. Meredith Marsh won first prize in the annual Chamber of Commerce Essay 
Contest. 

Shortly pafter the third term, the new honor-roll was posted for the first time. Those 
who received first honors were: Adele Antonitis, Mary Dowd, Cinda Eisnor, Ruth 
Flood, Elaine Johnson, Joanne Lipinsky, Timothy Lynch, Meredith Marsh, Olivia 
Russell, Nancy Sansone, Jean Schaier, Eleanor Stitt, Joan Thompson, Janice Young. 

Early in June we honored the graduating Seniors with the Class Day reception. 
Although there was, as always, a sad note in witnessing their departure, we never- 
theless happily anticipated the coming year with its many privileges and responsibili- 
ties. N.S. '56 

"Books are the treasured wealth of the ivorld, the fit inheritance of generations and 
nations."

OUR SENIOR YEAR— WE LINGER OVER THE LAST PAGES 

September 19, 1955. The day we had been waiting for. This was to be 
our year. We were now at the top of the ladder, we were Seniors and the 
"V.I.Ps" of Norwood High. 

Upon our return to school, we were surprised and pleased with the 
re-decorating that had been done during the summer. The soft pastels, 
pretty blues and greens, gave our school a new look and a lovelier interior 
appearance to conform with its outer beauty. After the first few chaotic 
weeks, we finally settled down with the anticipation of having a tremendously 
busy and exciting year. 

We again elected Coleman Foley as our President to pilot us through 
our last and most important year at the "Hill" Our other class officers 
were: Emily Sullivan, Vice- President; Frances Ryder, Secretary; Diana 
Laakso and Paul Butters, Treasurers; Marilyn Hutchings and Paul Conley, 
A. A. Representatives. 

The perseverance and never-say-die spirit of our football team were the 
main factors that made us so very proud of them. In the traditional Turkey 
Day game, the team, under the leadership of captains John Corbett and 
Richard Ellis, chalked up Norwood's fifth straight victory over Dedham 
by a score of 12 to 6. Our cheerleaders, Emilie Sullivan, Captain; Barbara 
Fruci, Marilyn Hutchings, Frances Ryder, Nancy Sansone, Marjorie Sasta- 
vickas, and Junior Leslie Novick deserve a big hand for the wonderful pep, 
energy and spirit they exhibited during the football season. 

November was also picture-taking time for Seniors. How can we ever 
forget how handsome our boys looked in their best suits and how lovely 
the girls were in their pretty sweaters and blouses? 

We presented our Class Play, "Father Knows Best," on December 9th, 
in the Junior High Auditorium. Showers of praise fell to Nancy Kilcup, 
Donald Everberg, Joan Thompson, and John Anderson when the curtain 
came down at the end of the final act. The other cast members, Robert 
McLaughlan, Carole Rogan, Marcia Feeney, Bruce King, Eleanor Stitt, 
Meredith Marsh, Diana Laakso, and Roger McLeod rate an honorable 
mention for the excellent job they did in carrying out their roles. To Mr. 
Flaherty, we would like to express our thanks for his wonderful direction 
of our play. We know that it will be many a year before a play such as 
ours will be equaled. 

Captains John O'Connor and Ralph Generazzo led our basketball team 
to second place in the Bay State League. Shortly after, John O'Connor and 
Martin Kuperatz were selected to represent Norwood on the Bay State 
League All Star Team. 

Our hockey team, not to be outdone, had a glorious season at the Arena. 
We shall never forget Captains Michael Kelley and Coleman Foley and the 
wonderful sportmanship they displayed, or our other representatives on the 
All-Star Team, Paul Abely and Henry Valentinas. 



27 



Our operetta, "A Waltz Dream," was presented on April 27th. It was a 
very timely love story, set in the magic land of Sylvania. The top roles were 
played by Nancy Kilcup, Donald Everburg, Lorna Hertzberg, Coleman 
Foley, Ann Merrier, Richard Ellis, Diane Strout, John Corbett, Enola 
Knapp, Paul McCready and Robert McLaughlan. Both Mr. Flaherty and 
Mr. Fleck deserve great credit for their untiring efforts to make the operetta 
the great success that it was. 

May 18th — the night of our Prom — a night never to be forgotten. The 
novel decorations, dreamy music, beautiful gowns and lovely corsages set 
a scene of romantic atmosphere, gaiety and merriment. 

Today, Class Day will be followed by banquet and graduation in all too 
rapid succession. Before we leave the hallowed halls of the hilltop school, 
we would like our principal, Mr. Hayden, our head advisor, Miss McCor- 
mack, all our Senior advisors, and the other members of the faculty who 
have borne with us for three long years, to know how deeply we appreciate 
their instruction, advice, and interest. 

We must express special words of praise to our president, Coleman Foley, 
to Timothy Lynch for his expert direction of the Student Council under 
Miss Hubbard's advisorship, to Mrs. Riley and the yearbook editors who 
labored long hours to make- our yearbook an exact pictorial account of our 
High School days. 

And now the Class of '56 departs, filled with happy memories of their 
high school days, confident in the future, and ready and willing to face its 
challenges.

'Education begins the gentleman; but reading, good company and 
reflection must finish him."

"MlMl" 

Mirja Wahe, better known as "Mimi" came to us in September of 
1955, as a Foreign E- hange Student from Finland. She was introduced 
to the student body uy Mr. Hayden at an assembly in October. 

Mimi was called upon many times to speak before various audiences, 
and she lent a helping hand in many aspects of our school activities. 
Because of her friendliness and willingness to help, she came to be an 
integral part of our school life. 

The foreign language students held a very successful party and 
record hop as a welcome to Mimi. A song was composed for her and 
was sung by the three hundred students. Songs in French and Spanish 
were sung and Mimi played a violin solo and spoke about the history 
of the Finnish flag and about "Finlandia," the Finnish national anthem. 

On Thanksgiving a large basket of fruit was given to Mimi by the 
Gracious Living Class. She is shown holding the basket in the accom- 
panying picture. 

As a Christmas gift from the foreign language students. Mimi was 
presented with a school ring. The Senior Yearbook staff presented 
her with her class pictures and a copy of the Tiot. 

Although Mimi was with us for only one year, she will always remain 
in our memories as a gracious symbol of international good-will.

''Books! Books! Books: 
And we thank thee, God, 
For the light in them 
And the might in them, 
For the urge in them, 
And the surge in them, 
For the souls they wake 
And the paths they break, 
For the gong in them

They bring to us 
And the songs of hope 
They sing to us."

PEABODY CO-OPERATIVE ASSOCIATION 

Smith, Cedarfield, Lipinsky, Kosiba, Watts, Eckhardt, Feeney, Elliot, Angus, Beck- 
with, Mrs. Beardsell, Miss Page. 

Our first field trip this year was to the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical comedy, 
"The King and I." Adapted from the novel, "Anna and the King of Siam," it proved 
to be both entertaining and educational. 

October was launched with the election of the Student Co-operative Association. The 
new Executive Board of the Association sponsored a class in dancing and social man- 
ners to all students who wished to attend classes during the activities period. 

The first big event in November was Parents' Night, when a series of tours was 
conducted by student guides. During the social hour the Peabody Glee Club sang 
and a one-act play was presented by the Junior Class. Refreshments, prepared by our 
own catering students, were served. 

The traditional Thanksgiving dinner climaxed November, and we all began prepara- 
tion for the annual Christmas Sale. The Christmas dinner, served by the teachers, was 
enjoyed by all. 

Another leaf on the calendar was turned, and the month of January was upon us 
with the White Elephant Sale. February was met with enthusiasm because we all were 
eagerly awaiting the skating party. 

The social year was highlighted by the prom which also took place in February. 
The decorations were based on Valentine's Day as a theme. 

During the last month "of our school year, the Juniors held the annual "Step Party," 
a lawn party, for the Seniors. Yes, we are happy to be graduating and are looking 
forward to bright futures; and although we leave our beloved "Peabody," in reality, 
we will never sever the ties that bind us to the school that has meant so much to our 
happiness. J. M. Y. '56 

"All that mankind has done, thought, gained or been is lying as in magic preserva- 
tion in the pages of books."

THE PEABODY PRESS CLUB KEEPS THE PUBLIC INFORMED 

The Peabody School is proud of its Press Club which is under the direction of Mrs. 
Goepner, but during her illness Miss Riley graciously has offered her services to the 
group. The press representatives meet each week with their advisor to prepare their 
news items for publication. 

Each division of the Beauty Culture, Foods, Dressmaking, and Business courses has 
its own chosen press representative who gleans the news for our newspaper column. 
The members are: Irene Stupak, Joan Berry, Rosemarie Coutu, Judith Watts, Joan 
Flansbury, Margaret Blumberg, John Connolly, and Carolyn Paige, who take great 
interest in and have accepted the responsibility of writing about our school. 

Each week a column of the Norwood Messenger is allotted to the "Peabody Per- 
sonalities." The various activities of both students and teachers are published. For 
the third year this publicity is helping to make the people of the community aware of 
the various opportunities offered to the young people of the school. 

We feel that our Press Club is an excellent public relations service and hope it will 
continue for many years to serve both the school and the community. B.L.G. '56 

"Of the things that man can do or make here below, by far the most momentous,' 
wonderful, and worthy are the things we call books."

When Man Realizes His Littleness 
His Greatness Can Appear 

The boys in the vocational group of the class of 1956 make the twelfth graduating 
class to complete their training and depart to serve as craftsmen in the field of Cabinet- 
Making. 

This splendid group of artisans have, during their three years of training, shown 
a real interest, ingenuity, and skill in their chosen trade. By uniting theory with prac- 
tice they have seen, in the course of time, how interesting and fascinating it is when 
their entire project is completed, the feeling of pride and satisfaction, in knowing a 
job has been well done: 

The Cabinet-Making course places a heavy emphasis on the "why" as well as the 
"how" of the business, for it has been proven that the men who get ahead in the trade 
are the men who know theory as well as practice. C.A.W. 

"Give me a book 
And the world may frown, 
My fortunes may soar 
Or glide gracefully down. 
Give me a book, and 
Contentment I'll knoiv 
For a book is a comrade 
In weal or in woe."

JUNIOR OFFICERS 

Hardford, Collins, Gulla, Foley, Butters, Peckham, Novick. 

THE JUNIORS HAD A JOYOUS YEAR 

When in September of 1955, the Class of '57 trudged back to the School on the 
Hill, we found ourselves gazing up at the seniors and down at the sophomores. In 
other words we were just plain "in-between." Now, oh happy day, we could pin the 
label "sophs" on someone else. 

Soon, after we had accustomed ourselves to the steady grind once more, the task 
of electing officers came around. The following capable group was elected: President, 
Peter Foley; Vice President, Leslie Novick; Secretary, Joan Butters: Girls' Treasurer, 
Dolores Peckham; Boys' Treasurer, Richard Gulla; Girls' A. A. Representative, Marsha 
Hartford; and Boys' A. A. Representative, Dennis Collins. 

Among our most promising gridiron stars were Bill Wenstrom, Bob Pillsbury, 
Martin Kuperatz, Bob Dalton, Charles Shannon, Pete Glebus, Jack Cooke, Joe Car- 
chedi, and Pete Smith. We're sure they'll lead us on to victory next year. 

April brought the date of the most important event on our social calendar, our 
Junior Prom. The lovely decorations and orchestra greatly contributed to the success 
of the evening which we'll never forget. 

Not too long afterwards another happy year drew to a close. Now came the time 
for our "hail and farewell" to the seniors; so we set about preparing for Class Day, 
after which we could look forward to becoming the "big brass" of N. H. S. S.D. '57 

"Books give not wisdom where none was before 
But where some is, there reading makes it more!

SOPHOMORE OFFICERS 

Ross, Eppich, Pierce, Pelletier, Gore, Sansone, Armour 

THE SOPHOMORES GROW UP 

Those great towering white pillars seemed over-powering as we gazed up at them 
on that nineteenth day of September, 1955. We entered timidly into the vast recesses 
of our new home on the hill. 

Soon, however, we gained confidence in ourselves and became accustomed to the 
new classrooms, and long corridors, and we became adapted to our new instructors. 

As a part of our growing up, we practiced the democratic poll-voting where we 
elected our Sophomore class officers. Under the efficient leadership of Peter Sansone, 
President; Elaine Pierce, Vice President; Faye Ross, Secretary; Rebecca Pelletier, 
Girls' Treasurer; Margaret Eppich, Boys' Treasurer; Arthur Armour, Girls' A. A. and 
Kenneth Gore, Boys' A. A. ; our Sophomore class had a very successful year. 

The Sophomore Party, held on October twenty-seventh was outstanding. The hid- 
den talent in the class was brought to light by our able emcee, Kevin Dixon. The 
combined efforts of Mary Lou Curran, Mary Ellen Welch, William Balfour, Maureen 
Kelter, Elaine Chamberland, Margaret Eppich, Barbara Collins, Lilias Pierpont, James 
Gordon, John Griffin, Paul Connolly, Brian Drummey, Becky Pelletier, and Nancy 
Newman made our first high school dance truly "Moments to Remember." 

We presented the annual Christmas pageant at which Mary Ellen Welch's solo, "Ave 
Maria," was very inspiring and appreciated by all. 

Now as we are finishing our first year in The Norwood Senior High School, we 
have grown up considerably and the columns now seem the welcoming porticoes of a 
loved haven. N. N. '58

"An hour with a book would have 

brought to his mind 
The secret that took him a whole year 

to find ; 
The facts that he learned at enormous 

expense 
Were all on a library shelf to commence. 
Alas! for our hero; too busy to read, 
He was also too busy, it proved, to 

succeed. 

We may win without credit or backing 

or style, 
We may win without energy, skill or a 

smile, 
Without patience or aptitude, purpose 

or wit . . . 
We may even succeed if we are lacking

But take it from me as a mighty safe 

hint; 
A civilized man cannot win without

THE STUDENT COUNCIL STUDIES AND COUNCILS 

The Student Council of 1955-56 had a successful year under the leadership of Tim- 
othy Lynch, President; Richard Griffin, Vice President; Virginia Kent, Recording 
Secretary; Joan Butters, Corresponding Secretary; Nancy Sullivan, Treasurer; and 
the Executive Board which consisted of Coleman Foley, Chairman; Pauline Thomas, 
Mary Dowd, Kathleen McGuff, Donald Greenwood, and Robert Walsh. 

The first highlight of the season was the traditional "Autumn Frolic." The theme 
for the decorations for this affair was taken from the currently popular song, "Autumn 
Leaves." This dance was both a financial and social success. 

The Council, which helped to bring our foreign exchange student Mirja Wahe, 
from Finland, is enjoying her as a member of the council. She with four other mem- 
bers attended the Eastern Massachusetts Student Council Conference held on Decem- 
ber 3, at Melrose High School. 

Joan Butters and Donald Greenwood were elected to represent us at the meetings 
of the Norwood Community Council this year. 

Our new Student Handbook was ready for distribution when school opened this 
fall, and we feel that it compares favorably with those of high schools in this area. 

The Council is continuing its support of all school activities and projects. The 
meetings have been very active ones, and we are especially grateful for a very re- 
sponsive Sophomore group. 

To Miss Mary Hubbard, our Faculty Advisor and friend, we express our deepest 
gratitude. We also thank our principal, Mr. Charles A. Hayden, for his continued in- 
terest and cooperation. V. K. '56

RUMOR REPORTERS 
Marsh, Pelletier, Corbett, Bagley, Sansone, Sutherland, McDavitt, Kent, Doucette, Drummey. 

THE FOOTBALL PROGRAM COMMITTEE IS ALWAYS ALERT 

Early in the year a small group of experienced eavesdroppers were commissioned 
members of the Football Program Committee or, as they were more commonly called. 
Official Rumour Reporters. It was their duty to obtain, by fair means or foul, that 
news which the student body so anticipated at every home game. These amateur Joe 
Friday's were equipped with a pencil, paper and long-range hearing equipment so that 
each new item in the categories of "Who's going with who?" and "Who isn't any- 
more?" could be properly brought to everyone's attention. 

Incidentally, line-ups were published, as well, to be read during the game, and for 
added enjoyment the team's vital statistics and secret ambitions were truthfully di- 
vulged. As for the statistics on the cheerleaders, their confessions were colored up a 
bit. 

All concerned with this very active enterprise at N. H. S. have enjoyed the venture, 
and even if they have perhaps lost a few friends along the way, others have been 
pleased with their publicity. M. M. '56 

"Education begins with the gentleman, but reading, good company, and reflection 
must finish him."

HILLTOP HIGHLIGHT reporters are Norwood High School Students who act as 
school correspondents for the two local newspapers. These students prepare the news 
of "The School on the Hill" for publication on a weekly basis. A two-fold aim is there- 
by effected, in that these students, who are interested in journalism, are provided 
with training and practice in the basic units of journalistic writing, and they attempt 
to interpret their school to the local community through the medium of the press. The 
prepared and edited news copy is typed by senior typing students as a regular class 
exercise. 

Virginia Kent, Sheila Graney, and Elaine Jacobs are concerned with the editorial 
aspect of this activity while Adele Antonitis, Carolyn Connolly and Betty Skeans pre- 
pare the manuscripts for publication. The news is published under the heading "Hill- 
top Highlights" in both the Norwood Messenger and the Norwood Tribune. 

"Golden volumes' riches treasures

Meetings of the Dwight D. Eisenhower Future Teachers of America Club were re- 
sumed in our High School the first Wednesday in October. Officers were: Jean Schaier. 
President; Elizabeth Bainton, Vice President; Dorcas Boardman. Treasurer; Olivia 
Russell, Recording Secretary; Lois Balduf, Corresponding Secretary: Margaret Smith. 
Librarian. 

We were very happy to have a great number of sophomores, both boys and girls, 
seek membership in the club. Realizing these people will be the leaders of the FTA very 
soon, we were gratified to feel that all had the qualities necessary to be a good teacher. 

Preceding Education Week last November, we placed colorful posters through- 
out the town to induce townspeople to visit their schools. We distributed more than 
two thousand flyers to school children. 

As in former years, many of the members have learned to keep a teacher's register 
and have turned in the monthly reports throughout the year. 

We have continued to provide items about our school for each issue of our local 
paper. Each article is boxed and appears on the editorial page of the paper. 

An auction, held in the spring, proved to be an even greater success than last year's 
auction. This year we again contributed to CARE'S "Food Crusade" and for the first 
time made a substantial contribution to the American Foundation for Overseas Blind. 
We were unanimous in wanting to make our biggest contribution this year to this 
worthy cause. J. S. '56

THE ASSEMBLY COMMITTEE IMPROVES THE SHINING HOUR 

The assembly committee is composed of students from all three classes, sophomore, 
junior, and senior. It is under the direction of Mr. Martin O'Donnell, submaster. 

It is the duty and pleasure of this committee to preview, when possible, and to plan 
the programs to be presented at our assemblies which are held on Fridays. Some 
programs are of a professional calibre but many are organized and developed by 
students. 

Among the successful assemblies this year there have been: The Talented Violinist, 
Mr. Cavalieri; Mr. Charles King, well-known baritone; the Senior Play Review; the

The Election Commission for the school year 1955-1956 started its activities in 
October with anual class elections. This year its duties were increased by the results of 
the Junior Elections. Peter Foley and Robert Walsh were tied for the office of Class 
President, so it became necessary to hold another election. The Election Commission 
has charge of all school elections. It sets the dates, receives nominations, supervises 
the balloting and counting of all votes which have been cast, and publishes the results 
of all elections on the bulletin boards. 

The work of this group is closely associated with the Student Council, as officers 
of the council assist the commission when help is needed. 

The members of this year's Election Commission are: John Anderson, Chairman; 
Louise Berglund, Shirley Doucette, Diane Laakso, Joan Thompson, Peter Foley, Robert 
Walsh, Nancy Newman, Donald Johnston, and Richard Griffin. J. A. '56

After the initial rehearsal weeks, with the help of our director Mr. Raymond Fleck, 
the orchestra was prepared for its numerous engagements of the year. It could be 
heard mornings in the assembly hall and provided fine entertainment at the annual 
music assemblies. 

The orchestra played between acts of the Senior Play in December, and as always, 
was an essential part of the Senior musicale. It played during the annual Chamber of 
Commerce Banquet at which the winning high school essays were read. 

Talented orchestra members are eligible lo attend the annual Massachusetts All- 
State Music Festival with Mr. Fleck. Each year this festival is held in a different part 
of the state. Members attending it this year went to Pittsfield. 

In June, the school year was brought to a successful musical conclusion by our 
performances at class day and graduation. Next year looks equally promising for our 
fine orchestra. V. K. '56

1955 FOOTBALL SEASON RESUME 

This year our hefty eleven gridiron men made their own great records, and thus 
followed up a lofty Norwood High School tradition. The eleven mighty men in the 
Blue and White uniforms battered and racked all their opponents, even when they 
were not able to claim victory. 

The boys opened the season in fighting spirit, and they worked hard at their open- 
ing game with Needham, but the experts of Needham were too much for us, and we 
came out on the short end of a long score, 27 to 7. 

The gridders couldn't be beaten for long, however, and by next Saturday a com- 
plete recovery had been made. The boys crushed a veteran Belmont team by the 
score of 24 to 0, giving Belmont a real shock. 

The boys were in the groove after that one, and there they stayed, following up 
that victory by bouncing from behind a one touchdown handicap to baffle an expert 
Framingham squad with a score of 12 to 7. 

The local lads were unable to follow up their great start for a while, however. Games 
started to become tougher and tougher, and. though they fought long and hard, they 
lost to Braintree, 32 to 12. 

Practiced Wellesley then crushed the Blue and White in the sad shutout score of 
32 to 0. 

Norwood put up a great defensive fight when 10-game winner Natick came to town, 
and Natick had to play its hardest game of the season to win by a 27 to score. 

It was not until the Dedham game, however, that the real power of the gridders 
came barrelling through and mauled Dedham in Norwood's fifth straight victory 
by a score of 12 to 6. Win or lose, the boys had what it takes when it came to sports- 
manship and clean play and they were supported by a faithful group of loyal fans.

"WERE THEY HOT ON THE ICE!" 

With Coach George Ronan showing the way to our ice-stars, the hockey team of 
'55-'56 had a fine season, ending the "ice-fest" second only to Walpole. Before large 
enthusiastic crowds the kings of the ice strutted their stuff, showing real skill in 
the handling of that slippery puck! 

Norwood started off the season with a show of talent as they downed Framingham, 
2-1. The pucksters followed it up with an even better score, beating Watertown, 2 to 
0. Wellesley fell next to the ever-battling hockey squad, by the monumental score of 
5-0. All looked beautiful, but Norwood's ominous rivals, Needham, clouded the 
horizon by defeating our lads, 2-1. The boys came back with a vengeance, when 
they won out over a crack Walpole squad, 3-0. The rest of the season saw Norwood 
maintain a fighting position, beating Waltham, 3-1, and B.C. High 6-2. 

The race for the Bay State Title was so tight that playoffs were necessary. Norwood 
went into these contests with high hopes, and succeeded in clinching a victory over 
Wellesley by a good score. The net men were sorely tried, however, in their following 
battle with Needham, which they lost by a margin of 3 goals, 3-0. Coming back 
with a will to win, Norwood succeeded in tying their arch-foes Walpole, 1-1, in 
a tightly fought battle. A second playoff game was necessary, and though the lads 
strove mightily, stronger Walpole took the Bay State crown by a score of 5-1. After 
a gamely-fought season, Norwood wound up in the second place slot of the league's 
lineup.

WE HAD OURSELVES A SEASON 

Norwood's '55-'56 basketball season was the greatest in many years for the 
hoopsters, who matched the hockey squad by grabbing the second place on the Bay 
State League's merry-go-'round. The court stars had the advantage of great height 
and lots of ability, and, under the direction of Coach Fred Richardson, our hoop 
generals amazed league pundits by overpowering such famed rivals as Natick, Need- 
ham, and Framingham. 

The list of scores for the first seven games of the year looks like a leaf out of 
a coach's dreambook. It runs like this: Norwood 80, Walpole 36; Norwood 74, 
Natick 71 ( a real shocker to the favored Natick squad ) ; Norwood 94, Framington 
80; Norwood 77, Wellesley 56; Norwood 83, Milton 51; Norwood 69, Dedham 31. 

During the second round of the hoopsters' stand, the going got rougher, as 
surrounding teams were "out to get" the league-leading cagers. Norwood downed 
their strong opponents, Needham, and followed with- a win over weak Walpole, 
85-46. But our lucky star faded in the next week, and two losses came, one on the 
heels of the other. Natick downed the locals, 64-47, and Framingham squeezed a 
victory over our lads in a heartbreaking last second win, 64-62. 

Back in winning style, Norwood downed Wellesley, 66-59, and Milton, 60-58, but 
then slipped to Needham, in another 2 point loss, 72-70. The cagers finished the 
season in fine fettle by downing their traditional foes, Dedham, with a healthy margin 
of 22 points over the Redmen, 74-52. 

As we went to press our basketball lads were preparing for competition in the Tech 
Tournament, after as fine a season as Norwood has ever seen.

SHORT BUT SWEET 

Our basketball team got off to an excellent start this year by defeating Walpole 
in the first game, but only after coming from behind at the half. A last minute 
basket by Rosemary Webber helped to clinch the victory. The score was 17-14. 

Our game with Franklin was a more thrilling clash, as both teams were more evenly 
matched. Franklin outscored us in the first half, but, sparked by Margie Sastavickas 
and "Liz" Bunney, we were tied at the end of the official game. In a two minute 
overtime period, we held Franklin to a minimum of points while we racked up our 
winning score of 15-14. 

Norwood traveled to Needham the next week and faced an outstanding team, 
that outscored us all the way. We lost by the stunning score of 53-12. 

In our final game, we again met Walpole who was out to avenge its previous loss. 
Walpole took a slim lead and managed to maintain it despite the efforts of our 
guards, Dottie Mellaly, Nancy Sansone, and Joan Thompson, who nevertheless 
prevented Walpole from gaining a bigger lead. The final score was Walpole 14, 

Norwood 12. 

Our season was short, but we broke even in the won and lost column, thus ending 
our basketball days at Norwood High School. 

We wish at this time to express our gratitude to our coach and teacher, Miss Erna 
Kiley for her helpfulness to us.

culation Editors, Jean Schaier and John Corbett, leave their worn and tired feet to 
those enterprising Juniors who will sally forth in search of ads and subscriptions 
next year.

Article XXXVIII — We leave our three year tenure on the hill reluctantly with happv

Class of 1956: 

Our 270 Billion Dollar National Debt is an accurate, unde- 
batable price tab. It is the cost for stewardship and social 
excesses of your preceeding generation. 

Sometime, Somehow, Somebody must pay. 

It would be proper, and you would do well to insist upon its 
immediate repayment. Otherwise that relentless vacuum, 
"time", will open its celestial gate. All those directly answer- 
able and liable shall then silently, but surely, escape into eternity*

MERCI BEAUCOUP 

We wish to take this opportunity to thank the sponsors and advertisers who have 
helped us to finance this yearbook. At the same time, we wish to suggest to our fel- 
low classmates and to all our friends who read this book that they patronize the 
stores listed in our advertising section. Yearbook advertising may reach a more 
limited audience than newspaper advertising, but it is much more permanent and 
much more handsomely displayed, and it will be read through the years by all of 
us who cherish this souvenir of happy high school days.

"Go little book and wish to all 

Flowers in the garden, meat in the hall, 
A bit of wine, a spice of wit, 

A house with lawns enclosing it, 
A living river by the door, 

A nightingale in the sycamore."
